Lauderdale County administrator Mike Sumrall has given members of the board of supervisors a letter saying he plans to offer his formal letter of resignation during a board meeting next week.
Sumrall told supervisors Thursday that his last day will either be the end of May or June.
Supervisor Craig Hitt says Sumrall told the five supervisors that they need to find a person who can work with all board members.
It was thought Sumrall offered his resignation back in January, but it was never officially submitted.
Hitt says this change needs to be made as soon as possible to allow the county to move forward.
